Greatness PersonifiedI am not the oneGreatness Personified1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
This rigorous pursuit of greatness is an endless labyrinth
I do not believe
My sacrifice will suffice
In my eyes
To be simple is to be great
I renounce the statement
My eminence defines me
My individual identity
Is a myth
A good betrothed life
But with hard work
Comes fake friends, risk and responsibility
With the limelight
Comes greed, hate and envy
With these aspirations
I must take risks and chances to become great
And I realize
Greatness is a road leading toward the unknown
I am not the one
"Everything great and intelligent is in the minority." ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
If you refuse to accept the fate of conformity, roll the dice of life and go for greatness

I awoke in a hosiptal bed confused, then looking at my wrists I realized I did cut them. I replayed my dream, something wasn't right. It had most of my memories in them but it had changed. 'Oh!' I thought. It wasn't Ezra who was dating natsu, it was...Lisanna, and, and I wasn't dating Laxus, in fact I'm not dating anyone let alone kiss someone. A tap on the door intreuppted my thoughts, I turned my head to Levi and Gajeel, both concerned (yes Gajeel was concerned I'm not imagining no matter what drug they pupped in my vains or much Weed the forced me to smoke. Gajeel had his arms crossed and closed the door as it magical locked from the inside, he went over and peeked through the window like in those movie and continued watching.

Nalu- Lasting Love Ch.1It has been a few months since Lisanna has come back from Edolas, but in reality seven years because of the Tenroujima incident, and Natsu has been spending all his time with her neglecting Lucy in the process. She had started to miss her pink haired idiot, and she had become less cheery. Recently the only people able to get a more 'Lucy' type mood was Mirajane, Levy, and her spirits. Even with their close relationship she never told anyone the reason for her recent behavior.Nalu- Lasting Love Ch.13 years ago in Romance More Like This
She woke up in the strong arms that she has been getting used to over this time of lonesome.
Loki has made a habit of sneaking into his master's bed and sleeping with her in his arms.
"Loki!" the surprised stellar mage screamed.
"Ahh, come on Lucy it's morning and I was cold last night back home," Loki said still sleepy.
"That has been your excuse for the past month and-You know what I'm just gonna go shower," Lucy said as she walked over to her bathroom.
"Shower! Mind if I come," chimed the smirking spirit.

'I wonder why you haven't been visiting me these past few days," the thought pondered in her head until she reached Fairy Tail. Even though Natsu had been paying attention to her again that didn't mean everyone did too. She entered without a greeting, and even though it was now normal to her, it still stung.

Nalu- Lasting Love Ch.6Lucy had taken a fairly easy job where she had to chase a group of bandits out of a town. The group consisted of three buff guys, but they were regular humans. The clients had offered extra if she was able to recover the stolen property. She had used Taurus to wipe out the bandits, and when he finished she called on Loki to find the taken items. She was given a list with all their possessions, and she had found them all. Having completed the mission in two days, Lucy decided to go home quickly since the town was a bit creepy. Next to it was a forest where you would think only existed in horror books. Trees were broken and marked on, the floor was covered in roots with tree branches, and if you looked close enough it looked like fog was coming out. The city wasn't much either, being old and rather run-down. Luckily when she went to the town mayor to collect her 20,000 jewels he told her a way to get to the train station without going near the forest. She used that route, and quickly boaNalu- Lasting Love Ch.63 years ago in Romance More Like This

Play my brittle bones,
until you find the right tune.
Stab my broken heart,
until you find the spot that bleeds the most.
Stare into my eyes,
until you wish to gouge them out
Look at my face,
until you are sickened of it
Cry into my chest,
until you see tears pointless
Beat me like a rag doll,
until you've let out all your rage
Touch my body gently,
until you want to rip it from my bones
Run your hand through my hair,
until you desire to wrench it from my scalp
Scar me emotionally,
until you think I've been wounded enough
Use my meek body,
until you longer need to
Do with me what you please,
until you no longer need me
But please, please
When you've finally left
Just remember me,

She turned around to find Levy,'Right, Levy-chan was with me before Natsu came!' "I'm so sorry Levy-chan, I got distracted. By the way when did you even leave?"
"When Natsu said something about him being worried, but when I was leaving I heard that you guys aren't teammates. I mean, I thought it was weird that you would go alone on mission, and that they would leave without you."
"Yeah, I'm not in team Natsu anymore. I guess you can say I got replaced."
She hadn't noticed before, but now that she was paying close attention, Lucy's eyes were lifeless when ever she talked about her old team. "Lu-chan, we're going to library okay. You have some explaining to do." Oddly enough the blonde mage complied without hesitation.
As they left, Erza and Gray sat at their usual table watching them. Something

Loki found the request the night before, so this morning instead of her waking up in his arms she woke to the smell of breakfast being cooked.

So far she was doing a good job on holding the tears and hurt look back, but not so much on holding back the pain in her voice.
"I just wanted to spend time with Lisanna, and have fun with her," the grin plastered on his face was mocking the young girl in pain even though it wasn't meant to.
"Yeah Lucy! Plus maybe this would be a good opportunity for you to train and stuff," the white haired mage said trying to hide her smirk. It was her idea to kick her out of the team after all.
"And your always saying you need breaks, and wanting to get stronger, so now's your chance. What do you say Luce, it's not like I'm gonna force you," the hope covering his words made Lucy's chest want to tear into a hole.

Giving rise to civilizations, yet plunged them to their demise

In death, oblivious to the redemption.
Profitless in hope, devoured in regret.

The forsaken groaned trailing behind the ashen tinted orc and his towering felgaurd demon, as they crest over the small hillside by Darrowmere Lake.

Mostly if that orc was a Dragonmaw orc; Lim didn't know the specifics but the other orc's made it sound like a big deal. However, Grimblood seemed like a good enough fellow. At least he didn't complain about Lim's stench. Though, that might be due to the fact it was hard to smell over the brimstone sent his demon let off.

The mare admired her reflection in her vanity.
She tossed her silvery mane and adjusted her perfect coif. She lifted a tube of mascara from the table and popped the cap, using the wand to apply generous layers of pitch-blackness to her the lashes above her deep violet eyes. Her eye-shadow was a glimmery shade of silver that matched her mane. She pouted coyly at her mirror-image.
The powdery-blue mare reluctantly abandoned her reflection, leaving the vanity to venture out into the main part of her home. The living room walls were covered in pale yellow patterned wallpaper. The old, beaten leather furniture was dull and brown. It was rather modest for her tastes, but she had inherited it from her parents and she had not had time enough to re-model the entirety of the interior. She didn't spend much time here anyway.

It was something he couldn't escape, no matter how hard he tried, or how strongly he loved. The desert at night was quiet, empty, and beautiful. Arcs of sand grazed from the tops of dunes as the wind sighed over them. In the far distance, he could see the lights of Gadgetzan. The elf was sitting on a pile of bones, ancient and chalk white as they jutted out of the sand. He was silent as he watched the moon, its light bathing the desert below.
